Important instructions after body tightening

After severe weight loss, many obese patients feel very distressed about their appearance. They lack self-confidence because of their severe skin sagging, which arise in significant weight loss in a short period. Here comes the role of body contouring procedures, but are their results considered guaranteed?

Tightening body sagging and removing excess skin is one of the most effective ways to get rid of the appearance of saggy skin, compared to other methods, such as exercise or others.

The skin tightening surgery helps to improve the body shape to a great extent. It allows tightening most of the body’s sagging, such as: sagging of the abdomen, arms, buttocks, thighs, face, and neck.

It is also possible to notice the results of the surgery immediately after your leave from the hospital. The final results appear within 6 to 8 months or a year at a maximum, according to the degree of following the instructions of Prof. Dr. Ahmed El Sherifa and according to the nature of the skin and the degree of its sagging, and the extent of commitment in taking prescribed medications.

•  If you suffer from severe sagging that decreases your self-confidence and satisfaction.
•  If you are not a smoker.
•  If you have reached your ideal weight and there is no desire to lose more weight.
•  If you are committed to a healthy and balanced diet and do not intend to gain weight again.

Are there other ways to tighten sagging without surgery?
Yes, many methods also help to significantly improve the shape of the sagging body, including:
•  Tightening creams such as collagen creams, proteins, vitamin C, and gelatin.
